Due to the surrounding neighborhood, the studio was faced with the undertaking of extending the property completely, but without making a heavy visual impact on the exterior street scene. As a result, they created a vertical addition, with a grand, spacious master bedroom on the first floor.
By using the same material for the extension as the original building, a strong link is set between old and new, with a streamlined appearance.
Another, single story extension towards the back of the house is a large, open space with a kitchen, dining room, and living room. With floor-to-ceiling windows and light neutral colors, the space is a peaceful respite for the family.
